Unlike mass, the charge on an object is said to be unaffected by the motion of the object. This statement in my text book, is not yet understood by me. I don't know theory of relativity. On ...
In a cloud or bubble chamber, charged particles follow circular paths. I learned that charge to mass ratio of the particles is inversely proportional to the radius of the path. Thus, a particle ...
Since Newtonian gravity is analogous to electrostatics shouldn't there be something called negative mass? Also, a moving charge generates electric field, but why doesn't a moving mass generate some ...
Since mass can be given to particles via the interaction with the Higgs Field could there be a "Charger Field" that supplies particles with charge? Possibly this would require two different "charger ...
We already had definition of mass based on gravitational interactions since before Higgs. It's similar to charge which is defined based on electromagnetic interactions of particles. Why did Higgs ...
Why do we have an elementary charge $e$ in physics but no elementary mass? Is an elementary mass ruled out by experiment or is an elementary mass forbidden by some theoretical reason?
